This article, written by Shayla Raquel, from 2015 recently popped up in my news feed, and made me realize just how far I’ve come as an author in the last 3 years.
8 Female Indie Authors Who Are Killin’ It
“It’s no surprise that girls rock. They rock so much, in fact, that we featured eight female indie authors who are killin’ it in the self-publishing world. Are you ready to meet your next favorite author?”
Awaken, Nina Soden
Genre: Fantasy/Science Fiction
Summary: Awaken is set in a world very much like our own, yet Atlanta isn’t just an ordinary city and Alee Moyer isn’t just an ordinary girl. Having barely survived her childhood, it will take the death of her father for the truth of her true bloodline to come out. Even if it means losing her life, or at least her identity, she won’t be able to escape her true destiny as the first surviving Dhampir in history. Surrounded by a new world where the horror films she grew up watching have become reality and the most unlikely characters have become her lifeline, Alee will struggle to find herself and her purpose.
When I think about an author who is always hustling toward her author goals, I think about Nina. This girl does not slow down. She is constantly working hard to push out one more book—she’s a no-excuses kind of gal and we could all learn something from her.
One reader reviewed the book, saying, “I quickly inhaled this story. The author has a very easy-to-read talent that engulfs the reader.” Ah! I pray that one day someone will read my novel and inhale it like this reader did.
What are you up to now? I am currently in the editing process for SECTOR C: The Hunted (book two in the SECTOR C Series).

Building an audience can be one of the hardest parts of being an indie-author. Mainly because we do all of the marketing, publicizing, etc. on our own. So, word of mouth from readers, amazon and other online reviews, and blog posts like these are so important for our success. If you can take a minute to check out the authors on this lists, maybe you’ll find your next favorite book. If you do, comment below and tell me what you read and what you thought of it.
